WILL FERRELL and DAVID KOECHNER were SUPPOSED to guest host tonight's 6:00 P.M. edition of "SportsCenter" . . . as their characters Ron Burgundy and Champ Kind from "Anchorman".
But, ESPN did post a funny clip online of Burgundy interviewing PEYTON MANNING. It's not clear when the full segment will air. (Search for "Ron Burgundy Interviews Peyton Manning for SportsCenter.")
The "end-of-year" mash-ups have started popping up online.
The guy who does the "Pop Danthology" videos posted his mash-up of the year's best pop songs yesterday. And DJ Earworm also posted his new "United State of Pop" mash-up. But the Danthology one might be the better of the two.
Will Ferrell did a real news report this weekend, in character as Ron Burgundy from "Anchorman". But he also showed up at a CURLING event in Winnipeg, and it was even better.
The website for Canada's TSN network posted a montage where he's in the booth as a commentator, and also throws a curling stone. And the "Winnipeg Free Press" has footage of his press conference, which was probably the highlight.
He said he could have gone to a football game or a hockey match, but decided to go with curling . . . which he called, quote, "the game of kings."
